From the beautiful, unspoilt national park area of Abruzzo, famed for its orchards which produce some of the finest fruit in Italy, D’Alessandro Confetture have been producing quality artisan jams for over half a century.
The company was started by Orazio D’Alessandro in the 1950s and is now run by his 3 children who, like their father refuse to compromise on quality. While most producers use fruit left over from other industries to make their jams, D’Alessandro use only the best, freshly picked local fruit in this outstanding range of fruit preserves.
The fruit is picked at the perfect ripeness when the natural sugar levels are at their highest and then literally crammed into the jars. For this reason the jams are visibly denser and less transparent than others.
